Facebook?s Spartans Ready For Battle, But War Won?t Come At f8
Facebook's f8 is quickly approaching ? by all accounts, it's going to be massive. Ten days ago, I laid out some of what we were hearing would be coming. Now it's time for one important update ? for something not coming: Project Spartan. Facebook's HTML5 app project (which will not be called Spartan at launch) is ready to go. But the latest word is that Facebook is worried that the project is so ambitious and the ramifications of it will be so large that there's some concern that it may overwhelm some of their other big announcements at their event. The fact is that they have so much coming that they don't need to announce it just yet.
